The New Spider-Man, Jim Lee's Birthday And Mike Wieringo In Today's Twitter Report

Ultimate Spider-ManWhatever the cards looked like that you received for your birthday this year, they probably weren't as cool as Jim Lee's. He prefers the DIY variety and shared a picture of the creations he received this year.

Dan Slott, meanwhile, had the opportunity to discuss Spider-Man with his exterminator. What they talked about, an excerpt from the must-read #whengirlsrundc thread, and a note on the 4-year anniversary of artist Mike Wieringo's passing were the tweets that stuck out today.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 12, 2011.

@DanSlott Just spent 5 minutes explaining to my exterminator that it was ULTIMATE Spider-Man who died, not Amazing Spider-Man. He said, "Thank God!"
